May 19, 2020:
Dear OTB Ballplayer,
We are monitoring the states actions and guidelines closely and we are optimistic our opening day is just around the corner. Depending on when our field permits
are released we could be on the field sometime in June or July.
Our Board of Directors along with committee members have met many times via video conferencing in the last few months to prepare for our season. This includes a
modified drafting process, schedule revisions, rules review and the development of a comprehensive Covid-19 plan. I am very proud of the effort and work this Board has
completed and like yourself eager to get onto the field.
If you know a friend or family member that would like to play ball, we still have a limited number of openings available however we are first-come, first-served so please have
them contact me as soon as possible.
A few notes:
Schedule: We have scheduled our championship game to be played October 18th in order to maximize our season. This will give us a six week playoff tournament and up
to ten Regular Season games depending on when we are allowed to start. As a reminder, all ballplayers will be offered refunds for games missed due to Covid 19.
Roster openings: Players registering now will be added to teams via random draw and will be considered Waitlist players for the 2020 season.
Rules Review: We are currently review our rules for applicability due to shortened season including use of wood bats, minimum player requirements and other eligibility
Covid 19 Plan: Please click on the following links to download and read our Covid-19 Specific Guidelines
and Player Self-Assessment Questionnaire which will be reviewed again as we approach our season and may
change depending on revised hazard assessments and state requirements. Players will be required to sign their commitment to follow all safety rules that the OTB Board of
Directors may develop.
Thank you for your patience as we work through this unprecedented situation. I look forward to seeing you on the field.
Stay well and stay safe,
Over Thirty Baseball, Inc.
